No bounce at all with this bra - worth every penny

No chest movement felt at all with this bra.
Could be worn by itself as a crop top maybe.
Nice back to it.
Comfortable to wear.
High wicking ability.
Quite pricey but then you get what you pay for.
Felt a bit restrictive the first time I wore it but soon got used to it.
It's quite different to the usual shockabosrber bras I have had which just resemble a normal bra. I'm a 34C so medium I guess and it definitely does the job required of it. I used vouchers I was given to buy this otherwise I would have been reluctant to spend this much money, but now I have one, I will spend out of my own pocket in the future!

No good for long runs!

Comfortable on the shoulders. Variety of colours available. Fine for shorter runs.
No good for long runs. Am training for a marathon and find that much over 12 - 13 miles and the clasp starts to rub. Have ended up with two sores where it rubs. Fine for shorter runs but no good for the longer distances. Will now be going back to Sport Jock!
OK for shorter runs. Very supportive.

Very good...but...

No Bounce
Shrinks
I have always had to wear 2 sports bras at once but with this one it does the job on its own. It's a very good sports bra, once you've got it on.
The back catch is fiddly, but works well once you've got the hang of it. I also find that sometimes the shoulder straps slip out of their (adjustable) fastenings.
My main problem with it, is that after I'd worn and washed it a couple of times I began to feel that it had shrunk as it was getting very tight. Then I checked the washing instructions and it's not supposed to be tumble dried. (I had tumbled it twice by then).
I know that I should have checked first, but I really always expect underwear to be able to go in the dryer for a quick turnaround.
Very good sports bra, but be careful when you wash it.
